Trademarks Webinar Series

The Trademarks Webinar Series delivers timely presentations that educate and engage our customers about changes to USPTO rules and digital services, as well as areas of trademark law and practice that are generally more advanced than our basic trademark resources. Trademarks Webinar Series sessions typically take place once per quarter and are eligible for CLE credit. Though designed with legal professionals in mind, not all sessions are exclusive to a practitioner audience. All Trademarks Webinar Series sessions are designed to provide you with:

  • Actionable information to help you adapt to filing procedures resulting from high-impact changes to trademark rules and laws
  • Opportunities to engage our experts and ask questions about specialized topics covered in the sessions

The Trademarks Webinar Series video library contains recordings of all previous presentations. You can also read descriptions of past sessions below to see if there's a topic of interest to you. If you're looking for more introductory instruction, check out our Trademark Basics Boot Camp series.
